Time line for 800 Lea may be longer than you may want.

It's difficult to believe that will be built. Hopefully, this info is being released for leverage

The only approval needed will be the DTC for bonus height. Pre-sales will be needed for the project but that is still a ways off. More details to come this morning.

With 801 and 900 church going up, any lender would be hesitant (or full stop) to fund a third tower unless he had the backing of Jeff Bezos

Does it matter that 800  Lea seems designed for a different market?

What a great spot for an MLB team/stadium... One can only dream....

The only problem with that site  from an aesthetics point of view (and it is a HUGE problem) is that MLB won't allow any configuration that would have a batter staring into the setting sun. The issue is that if you turned the stadium on this site in any other direction, you wouldn't see downtown, or perhaps just slivers of it, from the bulk of the grandstands.  Kind of defeats one of the main purposes of having a downtown location.

I know you said "ONE of the main purposes" but, like the pedantic know-it-all that I am, I can't help but point out some other purposes, such as: accessibility--for transit, pedestrians, and drivers; proximity to other stuff people might want to do before and after a game; and inclusivity. The last might be symbolic and maybe not everyone feels this way, but the city is a welcoming place whereas the suburbs aren't.

This has to be close to fifteen or twenty years ago,    Probably about the time Veridian was done.  There’s nothing on the left side so the picture stops there with the stadium centered in the shot.

Notice in order to center today’s skyline the stadium got shoved hard right of the picture.  This skyline is three times what it was in the first picture.

There are two cranes two the left of municipal auditorium. I think those are building the bus station. It opened in oct 2008.
